I received an email about a certain app, so I go to the App Store and before i download it I like to check what or how much of our data they have access to : financial, purchases, our contacts, sensitive  information and the list goes on . In my honest but humble opinion this should be criminal. I know it’s our choice to download and use a certain app, BUT REALLY?? No such thing as privacy anymore unless we go back to a landline and throw out our computers and cell phones. Not a big fan of how this whole system is going ( realistically it’s already there ) 

 

enjoy your day

This is not about PM it’s just a general observation about most apps , this particular one was a health and fitness one .

@Deano53  if this was a link through an EMAIL / TEXT or private message here on your Community account be wary!

 

Research the app name and if it is valid and one you are interested in go to your APP store separately, rather than clicking on that LINK you received.

 

As for data released to these APP vendors, well some info. is need regardless so you gotta give some stuff up. But it is a good practice to always DENY all permissions at first and see what is actually needed as you go.

I hear you! Everybody wants to stick their noses in your personal life so they can 'tailor services for YOU'. But actually it is all about sucking money from you...

If you come across any app asking too much (or any) personal info just delete it.

No , please don’t misunderstand what I’m saying (please) I’m a very cautious person and when i go to the App Store to look up a certain app that I may be interested In using I always like to check how much information we will be giving up and a lot of them need for some reason access to our financial and a whole host of other data.

That’s all I’m saying , just a general observation and how our privacy is really not ours anymore when we choose to use certain apps.

I will just say one more thing that most people probably already know , I was watching a documentary about Facebook and one of the girls who used to work for the company said that our data is the most valuable asset on the planet and it has surpassed oil. That is why these companies want it so bad . Please, I don’t want to start a huge debate etc. It’s just an observation I had , got to run have other things to do 🙂 enjoy your day everyone

these days, your cell phone is as valuable as your wallet.. or even more.. as long as the apps able to fool people to say yes to all the access, they can steal everything then.

Time for one more post , Facebook and other social media sites ( I’ve never used Facebook) but it’s free to download I assume . Well how did MR. Zuckerberg become a multi billionaire if his social media platform is SO CALLED FREE to use. ITS EVERYONES DATA that he says he never sells.🤔 . It’s becoming where they will know or already do , when we go to the bathroom and how much toilet paper we use and how many squares we use with each wipe. . Sounds ridiculous but they know more about us then we think or if we go through life kind of mindlessly, than what we know about ourselves.

🤷🏼😊
